Van Morrison

Rock,Blues,R&B/Soul,Irish/Celtic,Pop

The eccentric Van Morrison -- or, as knighted in February 2017, Sir George Ivan Morrison, OBE -- is one of pop music's true innovators. He is a restless seeker whose soul-searching vocals and unique fusion of R&B, jazz, blues and Celtic folk produced perhaps the most spiritually transcendent body of work in the rock 'n' roll canon.

Erasure

Dance/House,Pop,Electronic

Erasure formed in 1985 out of the departure of founding Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke (who was then one half of Yaz opposite Alison Moyet) and singer Andy Bell. Like Yaz and Depeche Mode, Erasure were a synth-based group, but they had stronger dance inclinations, as well as a sharper, more accessible sense of pop songcraft. Among the duo's hit singles are "Oh l'amour," "Chains of Love," "Blue Savannah," "Stop!," "Love to Hate You" and their cover of ABBA's ''Take a Chance on Me." The duo's latest release, "The Violet Flame," follows 2013's critically acclaimed "Snow Globe," and is the band's sixteenth studio album release.

Hannibal Buress

Stand Up Comedy

Comedian Hannibal Buress has earned both the honor of performing at the Montreal “Just For Laughs” Festival and the well-earned respect of his peers, who regard him as one of the brightest young talents to emerge from the city of Chicago. A natural storyteller who can captivate a room with his words alone, Hannibal generates huge laughs with the laidback, quirky observations that have become his trademark style. Timeout Magazine named him the 2007 “Funniest Person in Chicago” and New York Magazine listed him as one of their top ten “Comics to Watch.”

Patton Oswalt

Stand Up Comedy

Perhaps best known for his role as Spence Olchin on 'The King of Queens,' Patton Oswalt's style of stand-up comedy is often described as acerbic and sarcastic, and it covers topics ranging from pop culture frivolity such as comic book supervillains and 1980s hair metal to deeper societal issues like American excess, rampant materialism, foreign policy, and religion (Oswalt is an avowed atheist himself). Quite a few of his routines are about vice, especially pornography and alcohol. A famous line: "Do you think you have a problem when you refer to all alcohol as 'pain-go-bye-bye-juice'?" Oswalt has described himself as a "man without a country" in that he hates both George W. Bush and hippies. In February 2004, some jokes critical of hippies got him booed off the stage in San Francisco, while a diatribe against president George W. Bush got him booed off in Pittsburgh. In a subsequent tour with 'The Comedians of Comedy' he returned to Pittsburgh and was well received. Recent projects include the Pixar animated comedy 'Ratatouille,' plus the films 'Balls of Fury' and 'All Roads Lead Home.'
